Chamber will observe National Day of Prayer

On May 4, the United States will observe its 54th National Day of Prayer.

The NDP was established as an annual event by an act of Congress in 1952 and was signed into law by President Truman. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the NDP. In observance of this day, the Platte City Area Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development Council will hold its 25th Annual Prayer Breakfast at the Platte City United Methodist Church from 7:00-8:00 a.m.

The church is located at 14040 N. Hwy.

Major Derick White, Pastor/Founder of the Leavenworth Christian Church will be the speaker. Major White has served 21 years in the military. He served in Kuwait in 2004.

Breakfast will be served promptly at 7 a.m. The menu, prepared by the Methodist Women’s Group, will consist of a variety of quiche, biscuits & gravy, rolls and muffins, fresh fruit and juice and coffee. Geraniums, donated by Nancy’s Greenhouse, will be given as door prizes.

This event is open to the public. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at Platte Valley Bank and the Chamber/EDC office.

For more information, call the Chamber office at 816-858-5270.
